I've heard good things about this place. The reviews didn't disappoint. The broth was rich and flavorfull, and overall fun to treasure hunt for bits of goodness hidden in this pot of yummy goodness. Word of warning, the spicy hot was really spicy, even after straining out a bunch of hot red peppers.
This is a really fun place for families and groups of friends. And easy parking in front on a Saturday afternoon.

From a hot pot restaurant, you really expect just three things:

1. Good soups
2. Fresh meat / vegetables
3. Quick service

This restaurant checks all the boxes.

Was one of the last to be seated before the kitchen closed. The wait was extremely long for one person. The front desk estimated 20 minutes which was really twice as long. The food was okay but expensive for one person and not worth the wait.

We had a group of 8 and arrived 15 minutes before they opened. There was a rush to be seated by the 75 or so who arrived by opening time. Nonetheless, the service was quite good and the food was bought to the table rather quickly. It was a wonderful experience cooking all the meats and vegetables in the hot pot. We tried most everything.They tasted very good and it was a great way to party. I was the only one who had not been there before, but will be back.The cost was amazing low for what we got.

Chinese hot pot hasn't entirely taken off in America yet. There have been a few places, often with frozen meat and spiceless broth. Little Sheep is a Chinese chain, and it's just like a mid-range place in Beijing. It's good with friends and a lot of beer, good for unwinding after a sales trip. Can be a little loud in the chinese way. This won't be the best hot pot you've ever had, but satisfies that itch.
